Good scope, a little short on eye relief.  The specs say 3 inches, but they measure from the lens to the eye, not from the eyepiece collar to the eye.  Don't know about you, but I have never bumped my eye on the actual lens.

Don't put it on a thumper and you will be pleased.

My brother has a Meostar 3-10x50 with a 4A scope. It is mounted on a .223 AR for predator hunting. It is an excellent scope with very clear optics and great low light performance.
The eye relief is no problem on a light kicker. As RC said, it could be a problem on a light magnum.

I have the scope in question, very nice.  It reminds me of a zeiss conquest wrapped in 30mm cloths.
